comment Why don't OSes protect against untrusted USB keyboards?
@R I don't think H. Idden is being 'intentionally dense'. He is pointing out it isn't as straight forward as you seem to think it is. These are things you have to take into account when deciding what the default behavior of a system will be especially when many OSs now a days can run in pretty much any type of device with little to no modification. The 'Ok via already installed device' plan would fail on a laptop on which the keyboard/touchpad stopped working correctly. Half baked solutions are not solutions they are problems.

comment User name enumeration?
Wouldn't the results of this be nearly the same assuming similar passwords and a less specific failure? True Bob gets some feedback immediately whether a user email exists or not, but how much does he lose reattempting any rejections with similar passwords without this knowledge?

+1 this has a few inconvenient side effects.
